Brain and neuromuscular

Our brain and neuromuscular services are located on site at Southampton General Hospital within the Wessex Neurological Centre, which is one of the largest and most highly-regarded neurological units in the UK.

We provide acute neurosurgical and neurological care for a population of around three million people across central southern England and the Channel Islands and was named as a Centre of Excellence in 2016.

The central nervous system is highly complex and so are the diseases that affect it. We treat a wide range of conditions which require the skills of many different specialists. Frequently, a patient’s overall care will be overseen either by a neurologist or a neurosurgeon (if surgery is anticipated). Extensive support is also provided by other teams during investigation and treatment.
